Mobile Creativity Lab

Young Audiences’ Mobile Creativity Lab is a set of 35 iPads available to educators when they engage select YA artist programs. Equipped with arts apps such as GarageBand and iMovie, the Lab is a powerful tool for engaging students and introducing them to active, creative uses of technology as they learn about art forms such as digital music composition and stop-motion animation. See below for a list of YA artist programs currently utilizing the Mobile Creativity Lab—and stay tuned for more.

Mo Phillips, “Where Digital Beats & the Classroom Meet”

Mo Phillips engages students in the craft of song writing and how to get stories, emotions, and ideas into song form using Garage Band on iPads.

Isinglass, “Soundscaping Texts and Stories”

Students use sound and music to make texts and stories come alive.

Iris Taboh, “History of a Selfie”

How would Marie Antoinette have taken a selfie? In this residency we create selfies, and study how smartphone photography and apps have changed the way we see portraiture.

Chloe Hight, “Digital Storytelling”

Chloë introduces story boarding, observational drawing, watercolor, photography, videography and editing techniques and guides the students through the animation process.

Note to Washington County educators: If at least 50% of your school’s students qualify for free or reduced-price school meals, you may be able to receive Mobile Creativity Lab programming at no cost, thanks to a generous grant from First Tech Federal Credit Union.
